In the meeting, Health Minister Dr. Dhan Singh Rawat said that it is very important to make 100 percent Ayushman cards in the state.

On this occasion, Chief Executive Officer of the State Health Authority, Dr. Anand Srivastava said that the data of the beneficiaries for whom new ration cards have been made is not showing on the portal, due to which even after having the ration card, there are problems in making the Ayushman card. Data should be shown on real time. The minister talked about solving this problem as soon as possible. He said that the government is committed to public health. Apart from this, the issue of asking about the condition of elderly beneficiaries and providing them health services at home and free pathology facility was also discussed in the meeting.On this occasion, Director Finance Sanjeev Kumar Singh, Dr. Vinod Tolia, Atul Joshi etc. were present.
